Catfish World Records
World Records - If any fishing trip operating company can be said to have a philosophy, Acute Angling's would go as follows; Since the traveling angler has selected an exotic fishing trip and not a stay at the Ritz-Carlton, it is reasonable to assume that what he most seeks is a great fishing experience, not a black-tie tourist extravaganza. Since it is our goal to satisfy our client's expectations, we believe it is appropriate for us to invest our energies and resources into providing the angler with safe and comfortable access to the best fishing that can be found, without concern for frills that do not serve either of those ends. As a result of this focus, Acute Angling has a long history of exploration and discovery. We constantly look for the road less traveled (or perhaps that should be water less paddled) in order to find that river that has never been fished or those fish that have never seen a lure. We don't really seek world records, just the waters where they might be found. The world records just follow naturally.

More Record-sized Catfish
Many of our anglers have caught world-record size catfishes and have simply elected not to subject them to the extra handling and time necessitated by weighing and properly documenting their catch. Read about some of the other record-sized catches our anglers have experienced.
